schools in los angeles where students wouldn't have gotten in without references to see that those students had better outcomes. us started looking into this and look for a relevant database to test this and in 2004-2005 developed the paper that first discusses the issue in law school context and found this is quite a large problem, nationally the great bulk of minority students especially african-american students were receiving large preferences on a scale of a couple hundred spt points. traits were generally poor for this group. only a third of black starting law school graduating and passing the bar and this was affecting the lives of a substantially large majority of people who were supposedly being helped by preferences. what really struck me when the article came out was the institutional response. the collective unwillingness of a great many, the instinctive reaction of a lot of institutions to restrict data that was already very hard to get. the fact that there was no law school in the country where someone who received a preference could find out what their prospects were
is a lesson in acceptance. i went to college in ohio, worked in chicago, did tv in los angeles, and gave a funny speech once in fayetteville, arkansas, and get this. there are different kinds of people. and they're fascinating. i mean i like myself but a country full of me, could that work? ultimately no. i'm a liberal. i love the mix of voices and the larger perspective. of or pertaining representational forms of government, rather than air to be arrests and monarchees. the united states isn't run by the wealthiest or by some sort of birth rite. we participate by our vote and elect leaders to represent us. president lincoln's gettysburg address is a constant reminder. the government of the people, by the people, and for the people. shall not perish from this earth. one person, one vote. that's a precious right. that's liberal. believing that government should be active in supporting social and political change. so there's the constitution. the founders built in the ability to amend it and to pass laws to form a more perfect union. things like, oh, abolishing slavery and segregation, giv
differently. if it's cities, the cities of san francisco and san jose and los angeles. but, as for federalism, if you have a national popular vote system, you actually create incentives for states to race to the top rather than the bottom. we are going to make it easier for people to vote. one state same day registration. another state might make election day a paid holiday. we'll see different models competing state laboratories of experimentation. romney care as a precursor. obama care. states believe in states racing to the top. one of the aspects in this, i'm complaining about california and alabama get ignored. the opposite are you are in a swing state, you are innovative. there's this hilarious thing in columbus ohio yesterday, live tweeting the ads. to wrap up in columbus ohio, 45 of 45 ads were political ads. at a certain point, the amount of media markets and voters is fixed and limited. the amount of money is unlimited. it's all poured into the same place. my question for you, rick, when you brainstorm about a popular vote election, what it would look like, what would it look like?
